Here I was waiting for hours in the doctors office and nothing to read except Better Homes and Garden or Ladies magazine. On the cover, new ideas for a deck caught my eye so I picked up the BHG magazine and found this recipe. I am going to use it for a 3 lb pork roast instead of for ribs, I usually use a rub with about everything in it, apple cider vinegar 1/3 cup and all the usual spices, but I am curious about this recipe.
As always I'll try some of the Jack Daniels now and mess with the recipe until I hear the pig squeal, then I'll finish writing it up. NOTE
: After spending the afternoon on the deck cooking, the recipe is finished, and so is the Jack Daniels! Here's the final draft of my version of the original recipe, enjoy!"Slap Yo Mama" BBQ Pork Ribs RecipeIngredients:
2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 large bunch cilantro, washed, leaves coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce or Worcestershire
1/2 cup Asian sweet chili sauce
(from Asian aisle of supermarkets or Asian specialty markets)
1/4 cup vegetable oil or olive oil (possum or nutria fat for the Cajun cooks)
3 lb. pork back ribs, cut into 2 racks
Lemon Pepper or Cajun seasoning as needed
Sweet & sour sauce optional
8 oz Jack Daniels (for the cook)Note from Chef Savage Joe Rude:
Take the membrane off the back of the ribs when you open the package. As Art pointed out if you don't you'll be chewing rubber. Directions:
* In a blender or food processor combine garlic, cilantro, and brown sugar; blend or process until ingredients form a paste.
* Add soy sauce/Worcestershire sauce, sweet chili sauce, and vegetable oil. Pulse until well combined.
* Pour the mixture over the ribs in a large glass, plastic, or stainless steel container, turning ribs to coat well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
* Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
* Preheat grill to 350
* Remove ribs from the sauce, shaking off any excess. Save the remaining sauce.
* Place the ribs on the grill meaty side down for 8 minutes.
* Flip and grill another 4 minutes.
* Transfer ribs to a 9x13x2-inch baking dish and pour remaining sauce over ribs.
* Cover with foil and bake 3 hours.
* Remove and serve immediately, it should make 2 to 4 servings for Cajuns or Rednecks, but perhaps 5,000 Muslims... Serve side dishes and it will go farther.
Like I said, I am going to substitute a 3 lb pork roast instead of using 3 lbs of pork ribs. I wonder if olive oil would be better taste that the veg oil? Savage Joe probably knows. Let y'all know how it comes out.
